Capital of Vietnam, HANOI is a blend of long established traditions and modern imprints of Western colonization. Tree-lined boulevards and colonial buildings give the city a touch of Western elegance, while crowded blocks of tiny old houses and narrow lanes full of daily life bear the charms of the past centuries.

Start the day by visiting the TEMPLE OF LITERATURE dated as far back as 1076 AD, dedicated to Confucius and once the Mandarin Training School in the olden days.

Continue to visit the lotus-shaped ONE PILLAR PAGODA dated back as far as 1049.

Then visit HO CHI MINH MAUSOLEUM where his embalmed body is kept for homage visit (The Mausoleum is closed weekly on Monday and Friday; and annually for October and November).

Take a walk from the mausoleum through the park to see the former French Gorvernor's Palace and the wooden cabin commonly known as HO CHI MINH'S HOUSE ON STILTS in which he lived from 1958 till his final days in 1969.

Finally, take a cyclo ride to go on exploring Hanoi your way along the main streets.
